I made a batch of peach jam, love it! But the husband can take or leave peaches and the girls love the peaches, but don't like the jam. Hmm... what to do, what to do?
Then, I came across a muffin recipe that uses peach jam in a magazine I was reading. I tried it out the very next day!
I had all the ingredients needed, except for a box of instant vanilla pudding mix. I'm not running to the store for a box of pudding, so I substituted banana pudding. It made 13 muffins and was too good not to share the recipe with you!
I made them again using vanilla pudding, but you know what? We all like it better with the banana flavor. I am now keeping the pantry stocked with banana pudding mix so I can whip these up and use up my peach jam!
Here's the recipe for Peachy Muffin-cakes:
1 1/2 c flour
1 box (3.4 oz.) instant vanilla pudding mix (we prefer the banana!)
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/8 tsp salt
1/2 c butter, softened
1/3 c sugar
1 tsp vanilla
3/4 c milk
1/4 c peach jam
Pre-heat oven to 350* and line muffin tin with paper liners or coat with oil.
Whisk together flour, pudding mix, baking powder, and salt. Set aside. Cream butter and sugar in a large bowl. Beat in eggs and vanilla.
Alternately add four mixture and milk to bowl, stirring after each addition. Spoon batter into muffin cups, filling halfway. Place teaspoon of jam on top of each and press in lightly (be sure to press it in, or it spills out onto the pan!). Bake 20-25 minutes.
These are great as a light breakfast with fruit, or as a snack. If you make these, let me know how you like them!
